Why you’ll like it:

Recently painted outside and with the roof fully reslated, this substantial Victorian building has only two apartments within it.

This maisonette spans the ground floor and lower ground floor, with a large stylish living space which opens into the garden at the back.

There are two double bedrooms are on the ground floor, with the third double bedroom on the lower ground floor. At the front the spacious room has a high ceiling and an unusual period arch. The generous bay looks across the attractive street, which is in a conservation area and the traditional, “old school” radiators give an indication of the sensitive blending of old and new that you find throughout this characterful home. Next door, the light and airy second double room has its own sculptural arch and in the far wall, elegant French doors reach almost to the ceiling and open onto a private sun terrace, which is currently in the process of being completely refurbished, perfect for cat napping in the sunshine. 

The luxury bathroom is at the end of the hallway and is large enough for both a fabulous freestanding bath and a large walk in shower which has a rainfall head. The contemporary flooring is non slip and there is a heated rail for your towels by the hand basin. 

Downstairs has the wow factor with exposed brick, a big sky light and a south wall which is mainly glass, half of it folding open so friends can spill out into the spacious, decked garden. With plenty of room to relax or to entertain, the space is discreetly zoned with shelving at the living end. The current owners have placed their dining table beneath the sky light so guests can dine beneath the stars. The kitchen is safely tucked away from the main flow behind a central island into which the touch induction hob and electric oven are integrated under an arched extractor. Two levels of lighting and dimmer switches mean that you can choose your mood and all of the appliances, including the fridge, freezer, and microwave are all fitted, so all you need to do is fold the doors open and start the party!

Also on this level is the master bedroom, currently used as a guest room as the owners want to be near the baby, with a walk in closet and glamorous en suite shower room. This lower ground floor area is remarkably peaceful and sheltered from the street noise. This home keeps on giving as there is a uPVC door into a cavernous storage area with a ventilation shaft, as roof light and plumbing for a washing machine.

Bear in mind:

This fantastic maisonette is a rare find, with three spacious bedrooms, a south facing balcony and a garden.
